Entertainment Desk March 12, 2019

Singer Justin Bieber has broken his silence about his mental condition and is reaching out for help from friends, family and fans, reported E! News.

The 25-year-old posted a 2016 photo of himself on his Instagram  with a caption stating, "Just wanted to keep you guys updated. Hopefully, what I'm going through will resonate with you guys. Been struggling a lot; just feeling super disconnected and weird. I always bounce back so I'm not worried. Just wanted to reach out and ask for your guys to pray for me. God is faithful and your prayers really work, thanks!"


A source revealed back in February that the singer is batting depression and has been having a difficult time. "He really wants to get better," the insider said. "He has been seeking all the help he can get."

The source added Bieber has formed a strong support network composed of "the people that love him most," including his model wife Hailey Baldwin and his pastor. The source also said the singer "is in outpatient therapy and getting help every day."


Another source said last month that Hailey has been "doing whatever she can to help," including  going with him to appointments and meetings. "She's very involved in his plan of action and making decisions," the insider said.

"She's the rock right now and he goes to her for everything. She listens and is always there for him. Hailey has known about his struggles for a long time. He has dealt with depression before and this is not new to her. Hailey also knows it's not about her and their marriage is solid,"  the source added.
